Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Many marine biotoxins, such as domoic acid, palytoxin, ciguatera toxin, saxitoxin, and tetrodotoxin are produced by phytoplankton and some species of invertebrates and fish. These marine biotoxins can affect neurological functions, so as to induce health risks or even death. In this Special Issue, we explore the mechanisms and factors affecting neurotoxicity and look at gene-environment interactions, developmental neurotoxicity, and age-dependent neurotoxicity through marine neurotoxin research. We also welcome papers concerning marine neurotoxins as experimental models, potential therapeutics or neurobiological tools, as well as studies investigating the relationship between marine toxins and neurodegenerative diseases and the development of biosensors for neurotoxin detection. As guest editor of this Special Issue, I invite you to submit reviews, research articles or communications in this exciting field.

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Marine Drugs is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs).
